People on all continents meet their bank consultants.
A personal business relationship unfolds: questions, attitudes, insecurities, decisions. The bank table is a stage for confessions and masquerades, where values are negotiated and valutas get exchanged. Directly from the ‘pressure chamber’ of the finance talk, 15 individual encounters describe the worldwide struggle between capital and trust. TALKING MONEY focuses on our own collective image as bank clients who are trapped in an invisible global net. In a slow and ethnographic pace the force of money becomes hurtfully tangible.
